7:03 am
s. >> britain's newspaper shows that they're collecting documents indiscriminately and in bulk. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning. >> good morning, norah and charlie. surveillance power sometimes discreetly sometimes indiscriminately are being carried out possibly more vigorously by this administration. there was an order issued by the formal surveillance court to seek the subsidiary of verizon millions of phone logs on daily basis. i want to read to you part of statement that was given to cbs this morning by senior administration official about this entire matter. on its face the order written in the art cal does not allow the government to listen in on anyone's telephone calls. the information acquired does not include the content of any communications or the name of
7:04 am
any subscriber. it relates exclusively to meta data such as the telephone number or length of the call. what it does is tracks that meta data for information america and going to foreign nations covered by the order. they tell cbs news all of this is done in accordance with the procedures, it is reviewed at the white house and comforts with all known and established civil liberties protections, but it does not mean it's not going to create a national firestorm. >> john miller is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> so why is the government doing this now? >> well, just to set some ground rules, this was not program i was involved in or if it was i wouldn't be able to talk about. but let me talk about in principle why they do things like this. when you rub data against data, you get more results.
7:05 am
me ta-da ta is data about data. when you're watching suspected terrorists and you want to mix that against a particular threat, you see that this number is in contact with 50 other numbers but three of them are in the united states. does that mean a terrorist has a cousin in chicago or does that mean there's a cell in the united states, and to collect that data in bulk and run searches against it, you can get a lot of information back to show whether there's a piece of communication or network. the key is it's not about content or dealing with phone calls or names. what they're dealing with is numbers. >> what about the skepticism that they're not listening to communications. do you believe the americans should believe what the government is telling them, no, that they should remember data against de.ata? >> that was the rule of thumb in the building. they're the most conservative agency about that probably of any, sometimes to a fault.
7:06 am
>> john, thank you so much. the death toll has risen to six this morning after a building collapse in downtown philadelphia. 14 other people were hurt. some of them were trapped for hours. the collapsed building fell on top of a salvation army thrift store. nicole brewer of our philadelphia station kwy is at the scene. nicole, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was a tense day here on market street. as soon as the building you see behind me came down, search and rescuers went in there searching for survivors. good news came late last night as the 14th survivor was found. 13 hours after the abandoned building collapsed, a 61-year-old woman was pulled out from beneath the rubble alive. >> it feels outstanding to be able to pull somebody alive from the rubble. >> reporter: emergency response teams are still unsure of how many people were inside this structure when it gave way. they will continue to scour the airy. >> we're diligently going through that area and we're
7:07 am
taking our time a little at a time. >> reporter: philadelphia mayor michael nutter spoke at a press conference late wednesday night. >> and if anyone else is in that building, they will find them. they have been aggressive in their work, they are skilled in their work, but this is still dangerous. >> reporter: around 10:30 wednesday morning the vacant building came down with a roar. witnesses described hearing an explosive boom as debris toppled onto an adjacent salvation army store. >> people started screaming. they ran across the street. there were people inside the building. you heard them scream. we ran over to fwilding. we said, can you hear us, can you hear us, say something. >> reporter: more than 100 rescue workers arrived to transport the injured to local hospitals. people who had been shopping in the thrift store were found pinned beneath walls and buried under layer of rubble. the city says no violations have been filed against the construction company and also
7:08 am
notes that there were proper working permits. a call placed by cbs news to the construction company went unanswered. still, what was once a four-story building was flattened in all of 30 seconds. >> this has been a tough day here in the city of philadelphia, but we're a pretty tough city and we're quite resilient. >> reporter: now at this point, the search and recovery efforts have been suspended. we're told by officials here on scene. they didn't say why, and they did not say when work will resume. that's the very latest from philadelphia. charlie and norah, back to you. >> krw's nicole brewer. thank you. the first named storm is threatened the east coast. tornado and flood watches have been issued. cbs consultant david bernard is in miami tracking the storm. david, where can we expect the
7:09 am
trouble? >> a lot of it is right across the state of florida. if we look this morning we have one strong band that's moved across the state of florida this morning and another one offshore. there's a tornado watch for most of the state as well. as a matter of fact, the latest advisory has this as the strongest storm. it's 220 miles southwest of tampa. it's moving north-northeast at 13. tonight it moves onshore and early tomorrow morning, moving across southeastern georgia near charleston and then quickly the mid-atlantic coast during the day tomorrow. this is then going to weaken into an area of low pressure as it moves off east of new york it looks like. regardless if it weakens or not, there's the rainfall potential. coastal areas could see as much as five inches of rain in some locations. >> david, thanks. top irs officials return to capitol hill this morning to answer more questions from congress. a cbs/new york times poll on the scandal has just come out.
7:10 am
68 of americans say the irs targeted conservative groups for political reasons. >> 44% think the obama administration was involved but 40% thinks the irs acted on its own. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. and on the eve of this hearing the irs announced two employees had been placed on administrative leave and could lose their job due to overspending at one particular conference back in 120u. the conference cost $4.1 million and took place in anaheim, california, a stone's throw from disneyland. some managers snagd upgrades to hlavic suites of $1,500 or more. there was a lavish party that could cost two their jobs. according to the irs food was allegedly inappropriately

7:12 am
travel budgets. the irs budget was slashed 87%. >> do you think this kind of thing is going on any more at the irs? >> oh, no, no, no. >> reporter: maryland's elijah cummings. >> i think it's pretty much already been addressed and miss making new policy that would effectively prevent it from happening again. >> reporter: both congressmen say they assume this kind of spending was going on at just about every agency until the conference rules were changed. they say a climate had been changed, norah and charlie, where people thought it was okay to spend taxpayer money in this way. army staff sergeant robert bales has pleaded guilty to killing 16 civilians in afghanistan including nine children. he told the court yesterday the murders were premeditated. he said he could not explain his actions and many of his vick
7:13 am
tums were women and children. his lawyer, bales said, is sorry. >> he knows he can't take back what has been done but he wants to bring closure as much as possible to this tragedy. >> bales did four tours in afghanistan and iraq and suffered post-traumatic stress disorder. by pleading guilty he'll serve life in prison instead of a possible death sentence. and now a new twist in the sale of avandia. its use was restricted after reports of taking it could increase the risk of heart attack, but now in a highly unusual move the agency may reverse those restrictions. we're going to talk to dr. jon lapook about this interesting take on this story of avandia. >> it's an interesting story. dr. jon lapook is here. jon, this drug has been heavily restricted for years.
7:14 am
why are they revisiting this issue? >> norah, you have to go back to 2007 when there was an article published in the new england journal showing there was a 43% increase of heart attack. two years later the drugmaker published its own study showing no increase in risk but there were a lot of people including those within the fda who said this was not a well designed study. so in 2010 the fda votes to severely limit its use. the fda at that time asked glaxo to fund a trial, an analysis by an outside party at duke and they found no increased risk. >> so if indeed the fda is factful and convincing that this drug is safe, will doctors start prescribing it again? >> i don't think so. they'll say, you still have a study that's flawed.
7:15 am
i think it's already plummeted in sale. there used to be millions of prescriptions a year. now about 3,000 people taking the drug. so i think it's really kind of too late. there are other medications that treat diabetes well. i think it's not going dom back. >> interesting story. dr. jon lapook, thank you very much. after two weeks of suspension, the winner of a record $592 million power ball jackpot has stepped forward, she's 84 year's old, and she lives in florida. and as manuel bojorquez reports she's thanking a fellow ticket buyer for her good luck. >> reporter: floor ya mackenzie didn't say a word. moments earlier she had claimed the biggest single lottery prize in u.s. history. >> mrs. mackenzie has elected to receive the winnings in a one-time lump sum payment of
7:16 am
370, 896, $780 million before taxes. >> reporter: after taxes she'll take home more than $270 mill. mackenzie's only public comments read by a lottery official revealed that her jackpot win was the matter of luck and a kur us the stranger. >> while at line at publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning quick tickle. >> mindy crandall is the one who let the ticket slip away. >> maybe it was something down the road. >> reporter: mackenzie retired after her father died at her modest home in zephyrhills, 30 miles from tampa. neighbors were shocked and thrilled. >> she's a sweet little lady who's trying to live is all and
7:17 am
she won the lottery? >> reporter: mackenzie, a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, plans to split the proceedings with her son. >> what an incredible story. mindy crandall, the woman we saw in the piece let this grandmother cut in line and she's been very gracious about it and said maybe it was meant to be. >> and she said maybe there's be something further down the road for me. the north wants to reopen the complex to operate together and discuss other issues. that complex was shut down two months ago as tensions rose along the border. the wall street journalist says former cia director leon panetta accidentally leaked information to the screen writer in "zero dark thirty." the screen writer was invited as

director again. tell me what the ration wall was in the first place for annoying knives back? was it criticism or did they acknowledge they made a mistake. >> >> it's a complicate process. i think by backing off, they're putting passengers more at risk. let's take a look at what they were going to allow that they're not now. these were knives, and we've got graphic, that were less than 2.36 inches long, the thing you find on the edge of a corkscrew, not with a locking blade. the kind you might use to cut off the thread of your suit but you wouldn't bring to a knife fight. they've allowed the same knives to go through their security. 5 billion passengers have passed through. there's not been one report of
7:35 am
an incident. >> okay. but why allow these knives when the 911 hijackers had knives, box cutters. >> okay. because there are knives and there are knives. these f there are still those that would be hoe pribted. even just 2.36 inches long that have a serrated blade, locking blade, the kind you would use in an attack. here's the real reason, norah. the tsa aeligibilities get points for finding items. they spend so much time and effort looking for this which is a knife in a money clip that doesn't have a locking blade that you wouldn't do well to attack somebody with. and while they're this, they're not looking for the item that's actually going to bring down an aircraft? >> such as? >> the explosives, such as the

8:04 am
that's still incredibly affordable and i think we'll still see a lot of improvement in housing prices because housing is still very affordable because of those rates. >> melody, do you think the selloff yesterday is a sipe of things to come? >> i actually don't. i thnk we have to put in context where we've been. so from the market bottom, the market is up nearly 100%. just since last november, the dow is up 2,500 points. we've had a huge movement it is not surprising we've seen bumps along the road and i think we'll continue to see them during the summer, especially as we try to figure out what the fed is going to do. but i believe bottom line the trajectory will continue to be upward. >> all right. mellody hobson, we thank you. michael jackson's daughter paris remains hospitalized this morning. her parent's family says she's fine. yesterday according to her mother she tried to kill herself. paramedics were called to the

that's just another reason to go to costco. we're joined at the table. josh, let's talk about costco, what makes it so successful other than free samples all around the store. i swear, you can make a meal, i know. >> you can make a couple. >> i know. >> people holding little trays. count me among the costco shoppers. >> i heard that. >> yes, indeed. >> the success of the place is really interesting. on the one hand it really is the cheapest company in america. it doesn't have stores in the warehouse. it doesn't have shelves. it has what's called the steel. the executive offices are pathetic. there's no boardroom tables. >> and long lines. >> series of a bunch of tables. there's no publicity. at the same time it's remarkably generous to its employees. to its customers, cheap is all that matters. to its employees, it pays well. 88% get health care, 5%
8:20 am
turnover. >> what's the hourly rate. >> they're 2 x $1 on average which in retail is just unbelievable and the theory behind it is if we can keep our employees happy and keep them here, customer service and a lack of turnover is going to make us much more profitable. >> they say that they try and limit price overcost of 15% or less. you say they make a lot of their money from the subscription for the individuals that's more for business. >> yeah. about 88% is from the subscription prices. they try to make it about 14% overhead on any of their items. whether it's the 600 ounces of cranberry juice or 700 rolls of toilet paper, they keep it slow. you can use a lot of intellectual energy trying to set a price. >> they seem to be recession peru. they still surged during the recession, did they not? >> that's right.
8:21 am
what they also did was they said that the to their employees they were not going to do layoffs or redux. they approved a $3.50 raise. they wanted to keep the people there. there's so much competition that if you lose a customer, they have so many place goms not just to sam's club or walmart but to the internet. so one nasty exchange all the way in the back of the story with a surly customer representative, you can loose that person. >> there's something to be said about treating your employees well. i do believe they work harder for you and they're more loyal to you. a lot of companies don't do that. a lot of companies don't pay their employees well. >> i think you make the point that costco and other companies that have this employee focused, you know, benefits and treat them well, have done better through the recession.
8:22 am
>> they absolutely have. again, it's about turnover, keeping your talent. maintaining a level of presentation that's important. >> quickly, can the costco formula go international? >> they have to go international. for growth, they're looking at japan and tie baaiwataiwan. they have product issues with different people and places but they're really quite optimistic about it. >> thank you. he was a one-man high light reel on the basketball court. dr. j. is in studio 57. your local news is next.
